Making sense of the scents

With such a variety of scents to choose from these days, you can be easily confused as to what’s your best choice. You must first ask yourself what you are attempting to do with the scent, and what time of the season you plan to use them. With scent being the operative word in this article, you must first address your own.



There are many scent eliminating body soaps, sprays, and washes on the market used to decrease your odor. I use a lot of these products, and do my best to eliminate scent. There are also several types of clothing and clothing sprays which claim to kill human odor. You can try them for yourself, but I’m still not convinced on their effectiveness.

Cover scents are your first choice, and should be used all season. I prefer red fox urine and use it from the first to last day of season. Although not recommended, I spray some on the heels and toes of my boots for my walk in. Most brands state TO NOT spray on your person because you may be attacked. I’ve done this for fifteen years or so, and had no problems thus far. As for the type of animal you might expect to attack? I will continue to use the fox urine until I find out!
